“A sparkling, hilarious and original comedy, which sheds an absolutely new light on a country still struggling with cultural change. An incredibly alive, fun, intelligent and hopeful film, which never bores. Manele Labidi can be absolutely proud of her work.” -- Cinematographe


Selma (Golshifteh Farahani), born in Tunisia, raised in Paris, moves back to her homeland to practice as a psychotherapist to help the locals cope with the stress of cultural and social changes after the fall of long-serving dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. A comedy centred around her reintegration back to Tunisia and a subtle, light-hearted political commentary on the country's transition to democracy through the female perspective.
